“The proposed development has been designed to respond to Brisbane’s subtropical climate and lifestyle. All units benefit from being oriented to the street frontages and well-proportioned living areas and private open spaces that create an indoor/outdoor living space and maximise access to natural light and ventilation. The development also includes naturally ventilated foyers,” the assessment report noted.


With a portfolio of developments in West End, Chermside, New Market, and Cannon Hills, the developers are targeting downsizers and professionals for their Albion project.

Pyco Group also has a project underway in West End called “The Bailey” which comprises 26 boutique apartment units as well as other upcoming developments on Vulture Street; 36-residence, two-storey townhouses also in West End; and 2-storey maisonette homes in Sydney.
